DAN Honors George PurifoyDuring the opening ceremonies of the DAN Treasure Hunt 2008 @ Blue Stone Dive Resort in Thomasville, NC everyone wanted to take a min to honor the memories of our dear late friend George Purifoy. Published: Monday, September 15, 2008 11:10 AM EDT MOREHEAD CITY — A city native and a pioneer of diving in North Carolina, George Purifoy, 63, died Sunday Sept 13 2008, doing what he loved most. Mr. Purifoy had a heart attack Sunday evening while out on his boat based at his longtime business, the Olympus Dive Shop on the city’s waterfront. During the prize drawings The President of DAN was presented a check by Mr. Robert Outlaw from the event in the amount of $1,400.00 roughly. The DAN organization then turned around and announced that the money raised this day was being put towards equipping every dive boat with an AED machine. There were a lot of tear filled eyes all across the event. This was truly an amazing thing to do in the name of George Purifoy. Thanks a lot DAN you really came through for all on this one.
